NT Business Events Support Fund

18 Oct 2021 to 31 Dec 2021

The Northern Territory Government, through the Department of Industry, Tourism and Trade, acknowledges the importance of business events to the Territory economy and the role they play in enhancing the local knowledge base and being a catalyst for innovation, investment and trade.

The Northern Territory Business Events Support Fund (NTBESF) aims to assist the Territory business events sector by providing funding assistance to organisers of qualified corporate meetings, conferences, conventions, exhibitions and incentives.

Business events planners or organisations considering the Northern Territory as the destination in which to stage their business event may apply for financial assistance of AUD$100 per delegate.

Financial assistance must be spent with a Territory enterprise/s, in line with NT Government’s buy local
principles. This may be used for any of the following:

  • Engagement of a local Professional Conference Organiser or Destination Management Company;
  • Gala dinner;
  • Welcome function;
  • Welcome to Country;
  • Theming;
  • Local entertainment;
  • Audio Visual services;
  • Exhibition build;
  • Technical touring element;
  • Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) element;
  • On-the-ground transportation; and
  • Other activities that demonstrate support of local NT businesses e.g. printing, filming and photography, delegate lanyard and satchel production, local key note speaker (e.g. a local expert or affiliation with local experts); freight which incorporates the use of a local supplier (can be an international or national operator with a Northern Territory affiliation).
